He noted that Crimea and Odesa region have a great tourism potential and high-quality road and energy infrastructure is needed for its development.
“After the success of Euro 2012 in Ukraine the issue of investment in tourism infrastructure is very relevant. Ukraine’s image has improved, hundreds of thousands people came and were pleasantly surprised by the level of service and culture. Therefore we need a powerful program to develop the tourism potential of the country from western Ukraine to the south-east,” said Tigipko.
According to him, it is necessary to develop port infrastructure not only in the direction of increasing cargo handling capacities but also in terms of cruise tourism.
